Heritage Scrapbook Layout – Grandparents

 I have used a page from the Lace & Linen DCWV stack again to scrap these photos. I will give some explanations and products used below the photos.

 This is one of my favourite pictures of my grandmother discovered after a visit to look at photos that my aunt had in an album. I was so grateful that she allowed me to photograph whichever photo I wanted which turned out to be almost all of them. I also discovered the one of my grandparents together on their wedding day and this made me wonder if the photo of my grandmother was taken as they left for their honeymoon.

 I used Chromatics Cardstock CS53 – Rose and CS67 Camel for the various frames and also the flowers.

The pink ribbon was from my stash. The silhouette head is from the Heritage Cricut Cart and the Bling in the centre of the flowers is from the Bella! Wedding Collection – Pink Rhinestone with silver rim. (Links below to all products used.)

The flower is cut using the George & Basic Shapes Cricut Cartridge.

 The heart frame cut from A5 Cream Cardstock  for the title is from the Wild Rose Studio Die Collection –

Ornate Heart.

I printed the words on to vellum and then attached as below.

 The Oval Frame Die is also from the Wild Rose Studio Collection.

The pink ribbon with the pearls is actually part of the background page pattern.

 I printed my journaling on Vellum to retain the background paper and placed it on the page using a very thin double side paper often called Jac Paper

(thinner than the normal Jac paper) and invisible behind the vellum.

This flower is also cut from the George and Basic Shapes Cricut Cart and was the same shape as the one at the top of the photo but this time I wet the flower pieces and then gently prised them apart so that I had two layers for the petals. I scrunched and bent to get the desired affect. I added a little touch of glitter.

Silhouette Card ideas using one theme.

 Using just one theme, black and white, and my Heritage Cricut cartridge and two different embossing folds – Swiss Dots and Heart Dots both Cuttlebug folders I have created a series of cards – similar but different! The oval frame is from the Wild Rose Studio – Oval Frame Die set.  Unfortunately I have sold out of this but will be getting more in. A gorgeous useful die.
